CCP Unveils Dust 514 Follow-Up, Project Nova, At Fanfest
CCP Games has finally revealed its follow-up to Dust 514. Earlier today at Eve Fanfest in Iceland, the company showed off Project Nova, a free-to-play shooter set in the Eve universe made by the same team responsible for Dust and Project Legion.
Unlike the wide-open spaces of Dust 514, Project Nova is more constrained, with the demo level at Fanfest taking place aboard a ship, though planetside battlegrounds are in development. The demo level appeared to be control-point based, with the soldiers sporting a few high-tech gadgets, such as stealth fields and a shield generator.
There also appear to be several customization options, with mercenaries choosing from light, medium, or heavy loadouts to help fulfill various roles on a team. Crucially, Project Nova will be available on PCs, unlike its predecessor, Dust 514, which was a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
The video at the top shows off some gameplay, but we're hopeful CCP will release its own video, once it realizes that "exclusives" at conventions don't mean a thing when ordinary people (in this case, a fan by the name of Dennie Fleetfoot) can post inferior videos to YouTube. Still, what's your first impression of Project Nova?
